Went here twice on a recent visit to Paris - once for evening meal and once for brunch. The atmosphere is great, lovely staff and great food. For coeliacs they have gluten free beer and gluten free bread. The burgers and club sandwiches are delicious!

Wandering aimlessly through the streets of Paris on our way to the Luxembourg Gardens we found this great place. Staff were unbelievably friendly and our meals were excellent. While researching it later we found out that it has an Australian influence there. Maybe that's why we enjoyed it so much! Could not fault it, thinking about going back for happy... More

I went there last weekend and I was disappointed. It was ok, but too expensive for what they offer. I paid 7 euros on a carrot, ginger and orange juice, the cup didn't even come full and it tasted only like carrots. The avocado toast is good but nothing special. My friends had hamburger and it was too small. I... More

This was my first trip to Paris and I was slightly overwhelmed by the idea of a Parisian restaurant. My mother and I decided to eat lunch here and are so glad we did! The cappuccino was perfect and the burgers were delicious.

We stopped in here for a small breakfast. The atmosphere in the diner was warm and welcoming. We had cappuccinos and split a crossiant and the toasted fig and nut loaf bread! The fig and nut loaf bread was amazing, and definitely worth stopping by :)
